“I can only paint here in my studio. I’ve had plenty of others, but I’ve been here for nearly thirty years now and it suits me very well. I cannot work in places that are too tidy. It’s much easier for me to paint in a place like this which is a mess. I don’t know why, but it helps me…. For some reason the moment I saw this place I knew that I could work here. I am very influenced by places, by the atmosphere in a room…” – Francis Bacon (1909-1992; Irish). – Francis Bacon spent most of his productive years as a painter working in a small Reece Mews studio in the South Kensington section of London. Six years after his death, Bacon’s sole heir, John Edwards, donated the studio to the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin, where it can be viewed today, painstakingly re-installed exactly as it had been in London, including the original walls, doors and dust. In preparation for the relocation, the Hugh Lane catalogued and photographed more than 7,000 items - 570 books, 1,300 pages ripped from books and 1,500 photographs (all potential source material for Bacon’s art), as well as 2,000 art supply items, 100 slashed paintings, 70 works on paper, correspondence and more. This inventory was then computerized to become the Francis Bacon Studio Database, providing scholars with an intimate and insightful view into the man and his art. … Reproduced: views of Francis Bacon’s Studio at the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin; detail of Bacon’s “Three Studies of Lucian Freud” which sold at Christie’s, New York in November 2013 for $142,405,000.

Last night was a blast! I’m so glad I don’t have to feel guilty for not being in the studio today though 😅 I’m so ready for a slow coffee filled morning right now. Later I’ll be getting out in the sunshine and making the most of this beautiful autumn. How about you? What are your plans for today? 🖤🍁🔮✨ . . . . . #illustrator #illustration #illustrations #illustrationart #illustrationartists #artist #artwork #artistsoninstagram #thatsdarling #darlingmovement #makersmovement #thehappynow #womenwhodraw #flashesofdelight #worldofartists #mentalhealth #creative #creativityfound #creativelifehappylife #calledtobecreative #homestyle #handsandhustle #thenativecreative #livecolorfully #etsyshop #artiststudio #visiblewomen #makersofinstagram #creativemess #etsyuk

This is the very first portrait that I ever painted and the piece that changed the course of my life forever. Ten years ago I hesitantly walked into an art store on the way to a photoshoot in Toronto, and after a kind old man that worked there sweetly explained to me what I would need to paint a picture (for I truly had no clue), I walked out shortly after carrying this 16x16 canvas, two tubes of acrylic paint and three paint brushes. Later that night Bob Dylan hung on my wall and I knew that I had finally found what I was searching for in that concrete jungle… I had found a means to express my quiet thoughts and deep rooted emotions in a challenging and exciting new medium. Where I used to channel my creativity only through written word, I was now able to confront my insecurities, limitations and continuous search for something more through a fluid and forgiving art form… I will never forget the feeling of holding those brushes in my hand for the first time as Girl From the North Country drifted out from my speakers and I sat cross legged on the floor of my very first apartment - my brush hovering reluctantly over the canvas before I exhaled and let my soul take over . . . #creativeuprising #sarahmckendryfineart #mybeautifulmess #artiststudio #paintanyway #inspiredbynature #artflowsessions #ldoitfortheprocess #mycreativebiz #creativityfound #artsanity #carveouttimeforart #createcultivate #art_we_inspire #thejealouscurator #studioscenes #handsandhustle #creativehappylife #passioncolorjoy #colorcrushcreative #bigmagic #makersgonnamake #foundforaged #howitallbegan #canadianartist #calledtobecreative #oilpainting #selftaughtartist #bobdylan
